It’s a whole lot right now. The swirling tasks, people, worries, shoulds, and oughts. There is just not enough mental and emotional bandwidth to do all. the. things.
Yet, that doesn’t take away this lingering feeling that I need some permission. I mean, I don’t know from whom or what, but permission all the same.
So here I am to offer you permission. Feel free to use the permission slip. I’ve pre-signed it for you!
You have permission: To take a nap.
To just stop for a minute.
To have a hot mess of emotions.
To expect less.
For my Enneagram friends:
These may feel like a knife at first, but I want to offer them as an unburdening. You have permission for these today (and really always).
